Hot summer workout gear: Feel sexy while you sweat

Going for a run in 30-degree weather or sweating it out in a packed yoga class doesn’t always have you feeling particularly glamorous. But with these attractive styles, you can work hard and still feel flirty and fabulous.

Karma Cleo tank

Trendy tops

Your workout top doesn’t have to be a boring old racerback or a simple spaghetti-strap number. Thanks to designs like this Pratyahara cowl-neck tee (karmawear.com, $42), your gym shirt can be every bit as trendy and stylish as the ones you wear to work or for a night out . Plus it comes in six great colours, so no matter what you’re wearing with it, you’ll be styled to perfection.

Twist Tie dry-FIT cotton capri pants

Vibrant print pants

All too often, workout bottoms seem to get left out of the fashion equation, and we rely on shorts and pants in plain old black or grey. But that won’t be the case this summer when you pick up a pair of colourful print bottoms such as these Nike “twist tie” Dri-FIT cotton capri pants (nordstrom.com, $70). Now your legs can be every bit as eye-catching as the rest of you!

Nuu Muu Pebbles workout dress

Simple workout dress

Thought pretty summer dresses were just for casual strolls? Not so! Thanks to the comfortable and stylish dresses from Nuu-Muu (nuu-muu.com, $70), you can get your workout in and feel like a lady at the same time. The dresses come in a huge assortment of colours and patterns, so it’s easy to find the look that’s just right for you.

Flow And Go Tank II

Peekaboo tank

If you feel super sexy showing some skin in a peekaboo-style shirt on a night out, then you’ll love this No Limits tank (lululemon.com, $64). The flowy structure, slim straps and peekaboo cut-outs at the side make this tank a flattering and stylish addition to your workout wardrobe. Plus it comes in a variety of hot summer hues!

Lane Bryant Icon Logo Skort

Easy ensembles

Putting together an attractive workout ensemble can be a challenge when you don’t have any pieces that really go together. But that won’t be an issue once you have a few items from Lane Bryant’s plus-size active collection. Pieces such as this icon logo skort, icon race stripe knee leggings and icon racerback active tank (lanebryant.com; $30, $27, $30) make it easy for you to throw together a stylish look in moments.

Meditation 2 tunic

Cozy tunic

There’s no need to give up on your workout just because a colder day suddenly blows in or the AC at your yoga studio is a little too high for your taste. The long sleeves and hood on this Meditation 2 tunic (lolewomen.com, $80) will help you stay cozy until you warm up. Plus, the crossover neckline, asymmetrical bottom and pretty ruching make it quite the fashionable workout piece.

Michi Descent tank

Sexy sheer

On hot summer days, do you prefer to forgo the additional layer of a tank top or T-shirt and work out in your bra alone? Or do you simply enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you have something a little bit sexy on under your sweaty workout gear? If either applies to you, then you must check out this antigravity workout bra (michiny.com, $85) with a sleek design and edgy mesh.

flouncy woven tennis skirt

Flirty skirt

Whether you’re grunting away on the tennis court or lifting weights at the gym, it isn’t always easy to feel feminine while you work out. But it’s totally doable when you’re wearing a cute and colourful skirt such as this flouncy woven tennis skirt (nordstrom.com, $60). You’ll feel like the flirty woman you are no matter what fitness activities you get up to.
